One of the largest cities in South Korea, Daegu is home to one of the largest US military bases in the country. The city is served by Daegu International Airport
, which is centrally located with several hotels within easy reach.
Although Daegu itself is very flat, it’s within 20 kilometers of a great mountainous region that’s perfect for trail hikers and mountain climbers. The Palgongsan peak has several hiking trails that have been very well mapped out and offer unique experiences for different trekkers. Those traveling with children or not interested in hiking and camping can take part in the activities at E-World
, one of the largest amusement parks in the country. This park is also home to the largest tower in the city, perfect for getting panoramic views of the area.
Much of the nightlife in this city is concentrated around the Kyungpook
University neighborhood, where it’s possible to find street food stalls and local music performances. It’s a great way to relax at night, watching the local scenes and trying the different foods.
